UAE’s Gargash urges UN action to stop Houthi ceasefire violations

Published: Updated:

The United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Anwar Gargash, urged the United Nations - in a series of tweets on Wednesday - to take urgent actions to stop the Houthi violations of the ceasefire agreement in Yemen, saying that the pro-Iranian militias have violated the deal almost 1,000 times.

He stressed that the Arab coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen was ready to exercise more force to make the Houthi militias abide by the peace deal agreed in Sweden.

Gargash also confirmed that the coalition targeted 10 training camps of the militias outside Hodeidah port city.

The UAE minister added that the Houthis were not pulling out from Hodeidah and its port, and were obstructing the work of the UN mission in Yemen and also blocking the passage of vessels carrying aid to the county’s ports.
